Banjo Bolts

Just bought the 6.4 banjo bolts. Anything I need to know before I dive into this? Tried search but didn't come up with much.

Difficulty?
Torque specs?
Will it be hard to start after cracking fuel lines?
Anything I've missed?

Thanks in advance

its a fairly simple install especially on the passenger side, driver side is a little diffuculy, remove air intake, intercooler hose and it help to remove the belt, did them a while back and couldnt tell you the torque (i just cranked down on em until i knew they were tight) 17mm socket i believe and truck will pretty much start right up! Trucks gonna have great throttle response

Cake walk job! Depending on which washers you got, synthetic or copper, there is a torque spec for them. The spec is different for each style, but I don't remember what it was. I think my kit came with a torque spec for the synthetic washers I used, but I know it was a little more than it was for the copper ones. And just cycle the key and wait for the GP's to turn off, then start. It might have a couple air pockets that may make it run weird for a minute, but it's not an issue. I did a lot more work (full BPD kit) at the time I did those, so my start up took a bit longer

I LOVE the reliablity factor that I got with the kit! I have their EGR cooler and did the condenser mounted oil cooler. No problems, but I do have an oil leak that looks like it's coming from the cooler to transfer block fitting. I need to tear the compressor side of the turbo off to get a wrench on it to be sure it's tight. I'm hoping it's just a little loose . I also had an issue with my EOT and ECT getting warm now that it's 20* in the morning. Fixed that with a cold front I got from Cabelas
